Special Commemoration – 40th anniversary of death of Ruben Salazar

CCNMA: Latino Journalists of California Presents An Evening With Jonathan Gold L.A. Weekly Pulitzer Prize-Winning Food Critic, and

“A Special Commemoration of the 40th Anniversary of the Death of Ruben Salazar”

“Ruben Salazar, at the time of his death in 1970 was a columnist for the Los Angeles Times and news director of Spanish-language television station KMEX in Los Angeles.  Salazar was covering the Chicano anti-Vietnam War Moratorium in East Los Angeles when a tear gas projectile fired by a Sheriff’s deputy killed him.

Salazar had a keen sense of perspective and introspective in providing insight into the Latino community.  As the Los Angeles Times eulogized him, Salazar was “sometimes an angry man as he observed the inequities around him, yet he spoke out with a calm vigor that made his words all the more impressive and influential.”
